Government dissolves city council in Calabrian town

Rome, July 5 - The Italian government has dissolved the city council of the town Taurianova, located in the southern Italian region of Reggio Calabria, due to possible pressure local politicians may be facing from criminal organizations, said a statement released after a Cabinet meeting on Friday. ''The cabinet has decided, on the basis of the proposal made by Interior Minister Angelino Alfano, to dissolve the city council of Taurianova to permit the clean up operations of local institutions in which certain forms of organized crime may hold influence over their administrative actions'', the statement said.
